Sorting by time READ or Undoing 'Mark All as Read' command


G

Guest

I had been (foolishly) keeping important Unread messages in my Inbox along
with a large number of Read messages. I accidentally hit 'Mark All as Read'
and have lost track of these important messages because I can no longer find
them in the mass of emails in my Inbox. I immediately tried to 'Undo' the
command but that did not appear to be an option. Is there any way to sort
items by when they were most recently Read, or when they were 'Marked as
Read'?

Any other ideas on how to find these emails?

Use the Modified column - right click in the column header in the standard
preview pane (not reading pane) select Field Chooser and add the Modified
column to where you wish. Sort by this column.

Hello, I recently encountered the same issue. Could someone please explain better how to sort by time read?
It appears it was resolved but I do not understand the directions.

Many thanks in advance!

Hi,

I'm on outlook 2013, followed the instructions above, but the modified field only gives me the last modification that was made on an email (when it came into the inbox, replied to etc) - and not the time when it was changed to "read"

Any suggestions?
